I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
As a young girl, I was always drawn to providing care for people. I usually found myself watching medical shows and imitating what was being done. My passion for the medical profession continued to grow as I got older. I moved to the United States at age 18 to pursue my passion of working in medicine. Working in the medical field has been, and continues to be, very rewarding as I have the ability to provide care and education to my patients and help them lead healthier lives. I was born in Kenya, the youngest of three siblings, and I speak English and Swahili. My husband is very supportive and caring, and we have a son and a daughter. We enjoy outdoor water activities like boating and jet skiing.
About my practice
Kaiser Permanente's Ambulatory Medicine Department is dedicated to providing our members with effective, efficient and evidence-based care. Together with a team of dedicated and professional providers, we provide preventive services, treat acute diseases and manage chronic conditions like hypertension, diabetes and asthma, while educating and including our members in their care. We believe that "knowledge is power," and empowering our members with the right information helps them manage their conditions and make informed medical decisions.
How I thrive
I thrive by eating healthy and exercising daily. My day normally starts with 30 minutes of jumping rope followed by at least 30 minutes of weight training exercises. I enjoy walking at the Silver Comet Trail over the weekend with my kids, which helps me unwind. In the spirit of giving back to the community, I volunteer at the Center for Black Women's Wellness at least once a month.
